Leadership and entrepreneurship have mostly been treated as separate topics in the business literature. In this book, Po Chung and his coauthor, Saimond Ip, have totally integrated the two and developed a unique approach, which has important lessons for the startup entrepreneur as well as the corporate leader.
And all this is based on the story of the globalization of DHL, which is the quintessential Hong Kong success story. I recommend this book to the practitioner and the business theorist alike.

If you only buy one business book this year, The First Ten Yards should be it. Po Chung helped build DHL
International into a global corporation before ‘globalization’ was even a word, and now, like DHL, he delivers
the goods on his entrepreneurial formula. The First Ten Yards teaches budding entrepreneurs how to turn a
startup into a successful enterprise.
